I just learned last week that one of my favorite stand up comic, Richard Jeni died from a self-inflicted gunshot.  I've enjoyed his routines for his entire career.  He had at least one fan, me.  But I guess that wasn't enough for him.  Goodbye, Richard Jeni.  You'll be missed.

Babe, I'm leaving.  I must be on my way.  The time is drawing near.  The train is going.  I see it in your eyes.  The love beneath your tears.  And I'll be lonely without you.  And I'll need your love to see me through.  So please me.  My heart is your hands.  And I'll be missing you...

Yeah, he was hilarious. One of the few stand up comics that made me laugh out loud almost all of the time.

I didn't know he was having that tough of a time with his life.

Suicide is not the answer folks!

My fave bit of his was the pitch he did for the A&E channel: "A&E. It's time...well...spent."

     I don't usually reply to/read/respond to your posts, Mr. Wizard, but I did do a lot of Standup Comedy in the late 80's/early 90's.
     While I never worked with Mr. Jeni personally, I do know a lot of comics who did (Matt Woods, Todd Jordan, Edith Weiss, etc.), and they all had nice things to say about him.
     Yes, this is always a deeply tragic thing, when someone believes that the world is either better off without them, or that they can no longer endure the pain or dishonuor the world can bring. 
    How very sad.

I have no idea what this means.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
